Rana Segal has been filming Chicago Literary Hall of Fame events for nearly a decade, and in that time her substantial body of work has increased steadily. Her latest project is a documentary called Light of Truth: Richard Hunt's Monument for Ida B. Wells. The film weaves together the stories of Richard Hunt’s life, his fabrication of the Light of Truth monument, and Ida B. Wells’ heroic fight for justice, as told by her great-granddaughter, Michelle Duster. On Tuesday, Feb. 27, Dominican University will host a screening of Rana's 60-minute documentary, as well as a panel presentation with Rana, Michelle, and filmmaker Laurie Little. This program is free and open to the public Please let us know if you plan to attend; the RSVP form only takes a few seconds to complete. The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame is a sponsoring partner in this event. Wells was inducted into the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame as part of its second class, in 2011. Hunt, the highly celebrated sculptor who died last December 16 at the age of 88, presented Leon Forrest’s induction into the CLHOF, in 2013. Duster serves on CLHOF’s Advisory Council.
